Nothing is better than a high-class campfire breakfast. There’s something about the noise of nature, being outside and rolling out of the sleeping bag to a warm cup of Joe. Then getting to work stoking a fire and letting the smell of a delicious breakfast waft over the campsite, and, besides firing off the steaks at night, it’s my favorite meal to pitch in on. In case you haven’t noticed, I am a bit of an Outdoor Adventurer.

What is the best temperature for lamb?

Lamb is “the other red meat” and it is very similar to beef in terms of internal cooking temp. 145 degrees Fahrenheit is recommended. That gives you medium rare, which is best for flavor and texture with lamb.

Have you ever cooked out in the open?

Taken a family camp trip or are you even an experienced camper? I absolutely love camping – and eating damned well by doing so. I always prep meals ahead of time and it’s probably the only time I have a very detailed checklist of what I am going to be making and when – so that I am packed and ready to go for a fun filled few days of R&R. And there are 2 things that can make or break the quality of your camp trip. The bathroom arrangements – sorry but its seriously true. And kick ass food. Hiking all day, fishing, carrying gear, and sometimes – sad but true – even weather can create a bit of tension as the days slip by. When you can’t just escape to another room and flip through the channels, or take a hot shower to freshen up, a good meal (and let’s be honest, bourbon) can go a long way to keeping the moral high.

5 Tips for Easy Camp Cooking:

  • Color coded dining: Reduce waste and make sure everyone knows who is drinking out of what cup. Have a set of metal or plastic plates, utensils, and a cup in a unique color for each member of the campsite. Makes those late-night cocktails not get so mixed up and makes it easy to see if everything’s been cleaned up at the end.
  • No Fear Eggs: Crack your eggs and store them in a sealed glass jar ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about their delicate shells
  • Foil packets: Trap heat and moisture when cooking over the open flame by creating packets out of heavy-duty or two layers of aluminum foil. It’s an easy trick that requires no cleanup and doesn’t dirty a pan.
  • Packeted Spice Mix: Don’t settle for bland – have your spices mixed and ready to go in small ziplock bags. You can still season your recipes and never forgo flavor.
  • Take it to the next level – store each recipe, and its various packets in quart bags so that they don’t commingle as you are digging for the mayo.
Good food is a fast path to happy campers!

Now get active and let’s grill some lamb!

I’ve been on the go a lot this year, and getting back to my roots and enjoying the silence and wifi free space of camp sites again. It’s my detox space. Where I find all the chicky woo woo stuff of recentering, learning new skills (like fly fishing), and just getting dirty. Can we just take a moment to talk about how bad ass those trendy hammocks really are? Finally broke down and purchased one…. I may never leave.
BUT, back to the campfire. I am just now packing up my gear. Getting ready to hike for a few days in the Inyo National Forest region of California. I can’t even tell you how pumped I am. And bonus, I am hanging out with another kick ass foodie – Girls Can Grill!
Needless to say, we won’t be hurting for some good meals.

Recommended Equipment

  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 2 tbs olive oil divided
  • 1/2 onion minced
  • 1 lbs ground lamb
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp harissa
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 3 to 6 eggs
  • 3 tbs olives chopped

Cook the Lamb:

  • Heat 1 tbs of olive oil a large heavy skillet over medium high heat until the oil shimmers.

Poach the Eggs:

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer. 
  • Drop the eggs in one at a time, slowly and allow to poach 4 minutes. 
  • Carefully remove from the water and drain. Don’t have a grill for camping? Just fry the eggs instead and enjoy.

Char the tomatoes:

  • Toss the tomatoes in the remaining 1 tbs olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of salt. 
  • Char the tomatoes over the open flame 
  • OR: Toss onto a baking sheet and place in the oven under the broiler until bursting and charred, 3 to 5 minutes with a watchful eye.

Put it all together:

  • Toss the tomatoes into the ground lamb, arrange the eggs over over top and garnish with olives, parsley, thyme, and additional salt and pepper. 
  • Serve with naan, tzatziki sauce, and olive oil for dipping if desired and enjoy.
